Infant & Toddler Care

Newborns–23 Months

Our professional staff will tend to your little one’s individual needs and schedule, and will help them work through any separation anxiety. A daily report documents your infant’s feeding, napping and diapering times throughout the day. The infant to staff ratio is 4:1.

The nursery is fully equipped with soothing music, swings, age-appropriate toys and climbers for toddlers, high chairs, a fridge, microwave, bottle warmers and more. We also provide a seating area for breast-feeding mothers and a cozy sleeping area complete with mats, cribs, clean linens and blankets.

What to Pack

Lunch, snacks, bottles (ready to feed is preferred – pre-mixed formula and frozen breast milk is fine), pre-filled sippy cup, diapers, wipes, spare set of clothing and any comfort items such as a pacifier, special blanket or toy. Lunch and snacks are provided free of charge for babies who can eat the same items that are on the menu for the older kids that day (chicken nuggets, pizza, macaroni and cheese, veggies and fruit).

NOTE: Please label all of your child's belongings, such as bottles, food containers, cups, and pacifiers. Pre-labeling will expedite the check-in process and get you on the slopes quicker.

Check-In

Please allow for a few minutes in the morning to communicate to staff typical routines, special needs, likes and dislikes your baby may have. Please check in by 10AM to allow your toddler time to adjust to his or her new environment before lunch and nap time.

Rest Time

Toddler naps are scheduled every day after lunch, typically 1–3PM on mats with clean linens. Children may bring their own comfort item from home for nap time.

Child Care FAQs

Can my children of different ages be in the same room together? 

Siblings may be in the same room together as long as both are either under or over the age of 2 years. If one child is under the age of two, and the other is over age 2, we do allow the older sibling to visit the younger sibling for short periods of time as long as it is in the infant room.

Do you welcome children with special needs?

We warmly welcome children with special needs or disabilities as long as we can safely and effectively meet the needs of the child.

What if my child requires special medications? 

Medication may be administered to your child upon written parental instruction.

What happens to my child in the event of an emergency? 

If a child has a medical or dental emergency, he/she will be transported to Mammoth Hospital. Every attempt will be made to contact the parent immediately.

Can other people sign my child in/out of child care? 

Per California Licensing regulations, parents must sign their child in and out to complete transfer of responsibility.

How are misbehaved children disciplined? 

Positive redirection (or "cool down" as a last resort) is the only form of discipline used at Mammoth Child Care. Any form of discipline or punishment which violates your child's personal space is prohibited. 

What do you serve for snacks and lunch?

Typical snack foods include: graham crackers, fresh fruit, cheese and crackers, cereal with milk, and apple sauce and yogurt.

LUNCH MENU

  • Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays – chicken nuggets, French fries, vegetables, fresh fruit, milk
  • Tuesdays and Fridays – cheese pizza, vegetables, fresh fruit, milk
  • Wednesdays and Sundays – macaroni and cheese, vegetables, fresh fruit, milk

If your child/ren have any dietary restrictions that will not allow your child to be served what is listed above, please pack a lunch and snack for them.
